Images are all about color, or the absence of color. A photo can be more stunning and dramatic in black and white than in color, and vis versa. The presence of a color in a mostly monochrome image will draw the eye to the color. Sometimes the effect is created, like the image of the peppers, in a color image, sometime (with the help of photo editing software) the effect of keeping only part of the image in color, like the wedding picture. With the second one from T&J’s wedding photos, I also blurred the outer portion of the image to draw the eye even more to the center.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO THAT INCLUDES A FOCUS COLOR.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
- Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
- Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
- Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.
